What To Expect
What will Physiotherapy at Flow Physio involve
A consultation will commence with a discussion of why you have sought physiotherapy treatment. You will be asked questions about what the problem is and how it behaves, in order to get a clear understanding of the possible source/s and causes of the problem.
A physical examination will then take place, where specific posture, movement and stability tests will be conducted to test the structure or structures I suspect may be the culprit.
Once the examination has concluded, the diagnosis will be explained to you, and treatment options discussed. Once the treatment plan has been developed, we’ll commence the treatment during the first appointment.
